Diastolic dyssynchrony and its exercise-induced changes affect exercise capacity in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.

Cardiol J 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Cardiac and Vascular Diseases, Jagiellonian University Medical College, John Paul II Hospital in Kraków, Prądnicka 80, 31-202 Krakow, Poland.

Background: Left ventricular (LV) diastolic dyssynchrony is common in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFREF). Little is known however, about its pathophysiology and clinical effects. Herein is hypothesized that presence of diastolic dyssynchrony at rest or at exercise may importantly contribute to HF symptoms. Read More

Cardiol J 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Essex Cardiothoracic Centre, Basildon University Hospital, Nethermayne, SS16 5NL Basildon, United Kingdom.

Background: Fractional flow reserve (FFR) uses pressure-based measurements to assess the severity of a coronary stenosis. Distal pressure (Pd) is often at a different vertical height to that of the proximal pressure (Pa). The difference in pressure between Pd and Pa due to hydrostatic pressure, may impact FFR calculation. Read More

Alternative methods for functional assessment of intermediate coronary lesions.

Cardiol J 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

First Chair and Department of Cardiology, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland, Poland.

Wire-based fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a diagnostic tool used to evaluate the ischemic burden of coronary lesions. Large-scale studies have shown that FFR-guided revascularization is associated with better clinical outcomes. However, wide adoption of this technology is limited due to the considerable cost, additional time needed for set-up and performance of the measurement as well as the invasiveness of the procedure which requires pressure wire placement across the lesion into the distal segment of the coronary artery.

Cardiol J 2019 ;26(1):8-12

1st Chair and Department of Cardiology, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

Glaucoma is an optic nerve neuropathy of undetermined cause.

Tachycardia: The hidden cardiovascular risk factor in uncomplicated arterial hypertension.

Cardiol J 2019 Feb 25. Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Medical University of Gdansk, Poland, Debinki 7, 80-952 Gdansk, Poland.

Early detection and management of elevated blood pressure is crucial in reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The importance of an absolute risk assessment and patient risk stratification has been highlighted in the European hypertension guidelines since 2003. Amongst numerous risk factors influencing patient prognosis, elevated heart rate (HR) has been indicated as important predictor of future risk of hypertension, coronary heart disease, sudden cardiac death, heart failure, CVD, stroke, total cancer and mortality.

Cardiol J 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Therapy Medical University of Lublin, Poland, Lublin, Poland.

Background: Lung resection changes intra-thoracic anatomy, which may affect electrocardiographic results. While postoperative cardiac arrhythmias have been recognized after lung resection, no study has documented changes in vectorcardiographic variables in patients undergoing this surgery. The purpose of this study was to analyse changes in spatial QRS-T angle (spQRS-T) and corrected QT interval (QTc) after lung resection. Read More

Impact of air pollution on hospital patients admitted with ST- and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in heavily polluted cities within the European Union.

Cardiol J 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development, American Heart of Poland, Katowice, Poland.

Background: Air pollution triggered diseases have become a leading health problem worldwide. The main adverse effects of air pollutants on human health are related to the cardiovascular system and particularly show an increasing prevalence of myocardial infarct and stroke. The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of main air pollutants on non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) admissions to local interventional cardiology centers.

The use of modern telemedicine technologies in an innovative optimal cardiac rehabilitation program for patients after myocardial revascularization: Concept and design of RESTORE, a randomized clinical trial.

Cardiol J 2018 Dec 21. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development American Heart of Poland, Poland; The Jerzy Kukuczka Academy of Physical Education, Katowice, Poland.

Despite proven efficacy of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in reducing the all-cause mortality in patients after myocardial revascularization, the penetration of CR, due to patient-related factors and referral rates remains limited. To improve the outcomes, home-based tele-rehabilitation (TR) has been proposed recently. In theory TR enhances the effects of standard CR procedures due to implementation of an intelligent monitoring system designed to ensure optimal training through on-demand transmission of vital signs, aimed at motivating the patients through daily schedule reminders, setting daily goals and creating a platform for mutual feedback.
